What exactly is home automation?
Smart home automation is technology that allows the homeowner to simplify and customize the way they interact with their home. This means everything from motorized window shades, smart lighting and audio/video, temperature control and more.
Homeowners can control these systems via a single remote or device such as an iPad or another touchscreen device. Home automation carries many benefits like saving energy, increasing convenience and simplifying tasks for the homeowner, ultimately providing a luxurious living experience.
